A Way of Walking: Poems in the Traditional Forms and Metres of Japan
Ekstasis Editions, 1994 - 80 pages
Perhaps his most personal collection, A Way of Walking is Robin Skelton's second book to poems in traditional Japanese metre. Like most Japanese poetry, the poems are charged by sentiment and sensibility, an economy of statement and, at their centre, an affirmative expression of well-being.
